R v H [2023] (Crown Court at Winchester)

12.12.2023

Margo acted for a Defendant who pleaded guilty to s18 wounding with intent to cause GBH shortly before trial. The Defendant had hit the Complainant with a blunt object causing a skull fracture.

 

Following mitigation, the judge was persuaded that, due to the Defendant’s mental health issues and the delay in bringing the proceedings, a 2 year suspended sentence was appropriate.
